These are my first chicks - I bought 10, they are 7 weeks old and I just moved them into the new coop. They have been in 3 days now. They are going in and out okay. But at night they come in and all crowd by the door, they push in between the 2 x 4's almost as if they are all trying to get out. I picked them up and put two at a time in a nest, but they just fly back to that corner. I know the coop is big enough for probably 30 more chickens or more, Is this normal that they are doing this? Should I be doing something else to make them comfortable. I put some posts for roosting low and high and they are not going near them. Thanks for any comments and help. Jodi

Thanks for that info and reassurance. That is exactly what I was hoping I would hear, that they just need a little time or maybe a lot of time. Just a little nervous right now and watching every move.
